Fokke Moerel and Bertrand Schippan to join panel discussions at MIPIM 2023


Are you at MIPIM in Cannes this year? Then do not hesitate to join us on the ground to exchange ideas!

On March 15, partner and architect Bertrand Schippan will host a roundtable discussion at MIPIM on transformation from other typologies to residential. He will use our Frøsilo project in Copenhagen as a starting point to sparkle the conversation. His roundtable is open to join of any visitor and part of The Residential Workshop. This workshop, designed for investors, developers and political leaders among others, will assess the latest challenges, opportunities and solutions for the residential sector. The session will enable participants to debate – via a keynote address and panel discussion followed by an interactive round-seating discussion format with table leaders.

Partner and architect Fokke Moerel will join the panel discussion Cultural instrastructure: why do we need it? on March 16. This session will examine what we mean by cultural infrastructure and why it is vital to well-being, the economy, and revitalising town and city centres. What are the various ways that it is consumed and produced? Why is cultural infrastructure so vital and beneficial to our prosperity? What innovations are we seeing? During the discussion, Fokke will share MVRVD’s vision on these questions, using projects such as the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen as an example.

Established in 1990, MIPIM connects and inspires the international built environment sector to create more sustainable, liveable, and prosperous places for all. MIPIM in Cannes has become the point of reference for the entire global real estate industry, where delegates can gain access to global capital sources and hear about exciting development projects in the world.
